The College for Australian Early Childhood Educators (CAECE) is a proprietary limited company that is 100 per cent owned and operated by Australian Childcare Alliance Queensland. It has been established to deliver high quality, practical and up to date training to the private long day care sector throughout Australia.
CAECE is committed to ensuring that:
CAECE is industry led and developed. We always incorporate the latest industry developments into our programs, and our links with Australian Childcare Alliance Queensland mean that we are kept up to date with changes in government regulation and best practice. Our unique insight into the early childhood education sector means that we can focus on aspects of education and care not available through other training providers.
Our trainers and assessors have extensive industry experience. CAECE prides itself on the excellence of its trainers. All of our trainers have extensive experience in both the early childhood and training sectors. They believe in hands-on education and make sure that there is a balance between theory and practical assessments.
We offer individual support. Each trainer is capped at 50 students to make sure that every trainee/apprentice receives quality teaching and support. This allows our teachers to tailor the training to the individual needs of its students. Implementing this cap also allows us to provide the appropriate assistance to the supervisors overseeing students in the workplace.
To realise a holistic capability framework that nurtures, educates and supports those within the early childhood sector and in turn creates greater advocacy.
To set the benchmark in the training and support of early childhood educators.
The beliefs which we expect team members of CAECE and the organisation as a whole to uphold.
We listen carefully and respond to the needs and expectations of our clients and our community. We encourage creativity and innovation as we constantly seek to improve our services and to enhance the quality of education in our sector.
We proudly uphold the values of honesty and sincerity, while remaining fair and ethical in even the most difficult situations.
We aspire to an excellence that is approached through diligent effort, both individual and collective. Pursuing excellence means being satisfied with no less than the highest goals we can envision. Pursuing excellence involves being informed by regional, national and global standards, as well as our personal expectations. We recognise and accept the sacrifices, risks and responsibilities involved in pursuing excellence, and so we celebrate each other's successes. We commit ourselves to this process in an ethical manner.
